IMI Awards Certified EV & Hybrid Vehicle Training

Chorley Group EV In association with ICT Workshops Solutions Ltd

IMI Awards QCF Level 1 – Electric Vehicle Awareness

A half-day course, designed for those people who may encounter electric/hybrid vehicles and require safety awareness. It is suitable for non-technical people such as managers, valeters, parts, sales staff and electric vehicle drivers. It contains the knowledge of the dangers surrounding electric/hybrid vehicles and the precautions to avoid potential injury.

Note – this is a knowledge unit only, and does not deem someone competent to work on the high energy electrical system.

IMI Awards QCF Level 2 – Electrically Propelled Vehicle Hazard Management

A one-day course, designed for those people who may encounter accident damaged or broken down electric and hybrid vehicles, e.g. Firefighters, Traffic Police, Paramedics and Roadside Recovery Operators. It contains the knowledge required to work safely around a vehicle that may have had damage to its high and/or low voltage electrical system.

Note – this is a knowledge unit only, and does not deem someone competent to work on the high energy electrical system

IMI Awards QCF Level 2 – Electric/Hybrid Routine Maintenance Activities

A two-day course which is classroom-based intensive theoretical training. This Award is designed for technicians who maintain and repair hybrid/EV technology vehicles, but not the high voltage system itself. It contains the knowledge required to work safely around a vehicle's HV system, whilst carrying out repairs or maintenance. It discusses the HV components used by various manufacturers, how the systems work, and how to safely discharge and immobilise the high-voltage systems. This knowledge is tested via an online multiple-choice test. Therefore on completing this Level 2 qualification, technicians will have gained both knowledge of high voltage hybrid technologies and an understanding of their dangers.

IMI Awards QCF Level 3 - Electric Vehicle System Repair and Replacement 

A three day course, incorporating the Level 2 course but adding a workshop-based third day. This Award is designed for technicians who maintain electric vehicles and the high voltage system itself. It contains the knowledge and skills required to work safely in and around the vehicle's HV system. The knowledge is tested via an online multiple choice test, and the skills via oral questioning and a practical assessment. On completion of this qualification (containing both Level 2 & 3), technicians will be able to practically demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills required for repairing vehicles with high voltage technologies.
